  Sneaky: ...Nxf7 6. Ne6 and White traps himself a Queen
Apr-04-05  Lord.Dracula: Better is 4. ♗xf7+! ♔xf7 5. ♘g5+ ♔e8 6. ♘e6, wins the Queen.
Dec-14-05  DeepBlade: The Bishop+Knight combo to fork on weak squares is used a lot among blitz players.
Dec-19-05  Tariqov: <Lord.Dracula> is 4.Bxf7??Kxf7 5.Ng5+Kg7 and Black wins
Dec-19-05  PizzatheHut: <Tariqov> After 5...Kg7, white wins the black queen with 6. Ne6+.
Jan-08-06  Necessary Truths: 4. Bxf7+! Kxf7 5. Ng5+ is a more elegant line.

If 5. ... Ke8 6. Ne6 traps the queen.
If 5. ... Kg7 6. Ne6+ wins the queen.
And if 5. ... Kf6 6. Qf3+ with either:

a) 6. ... Kxg5 7. d4+ Kh4 8. Qh3++
or b) 6. ... Ke5 7. d4+! Kxd4 8. Qc3++

However, it should be noted that the first line lets black have two minor pieces for a queen and pawn. And considering the year in which this was played, that might leave black with some chances to recover.

Jan-08-06  TIMER: 3.. g6?? 4 Ng5?? (Bf7+ wins) 4... Nh6?? (e6/Ne5 fine). Three blunders in a row in moves 3 and 4, finally white plays 5 Bf7+ and black resigns.
Jul-11-09  Knight13: Whoever black is, he doesn't know how to play Hypermodern.

  FSR: As <TIMER>, <Lord.Dracula>, and <Necessary Truths> indicate, 4.Bxf7+! was best, forcing the win of queen and pawn for bishop and knight. After 4.Ng5?!, Black could have saved himself with 4...e6.
